Type of Event
The retreat starts on Monday 9th February afternoon and ends on Monday 16th at noon.
The gorgeous ivory-colored cove of Agonda, known as "the silent beach", is situated in South Goa. It is a 5 km long sandy beach where you can swim with doplhins - a perfect hidden spot for relaxing getaway! At one end of Agonda beach, on the green hill overlooking the Arabian sea lies a peaceful yoga retreat place surrounded by abundant jungle vegetation.
12 simple bamboo huts each facing the sea, a traditional clay-floor open-air yoga shala with a stunning sea view, and a typical goan organic restaurant where you can enjoy fresh Indian dishes and a breath taking view of both the sea and the river – makes a perfect platform for diving deep into yogic way of living.
Indian-style bamboo huts with terrace facing the sea. Each hut has a double or a twin bed w/ bathroom with shower and hot water (on request), mosquito net and WiFi. You can choose your stay in a shared (double-occupancy) or in a single room.
